We start with drills
to get you to feel what your body is doing while
you run. We work on
different parts (feet, hips, shoulders, etc.)
separately, then put it
all together. We finish with a group run. This
is a chance to review
and ask questions during a continuous run. It's
like a final exam, but
about fitness (except for TR102). We won't
be continuously running for 4.5 hours. Most
of the runs will be very short, ~10-20
seconds, at a low effort level, with lots of
recovery time. There will
be 2-3 breaks for snacks, and to watch videos.
The goal is to work on
form, not to test fitness.
